How polymer knife-edge rollers are making maintenance-free conveyor belts and packaging systems possible, enhancing performance.

Krones AG produces systems and machines for making, filling, and packaging beverages and liquid food. The industry never sleeps. So it is hardly surprising that Krones systems have to break their own speed records again and again. This becomes a problem when a part cannot withstand the pressure and there is no alternative that can perform better. That is why igus GmbH developed knife-edge rollers made of tribo-polymers for Krones, helping them achieve new records. In 2005, Krones faced a challenge with the Variopac Pro, a fully automatic all-round packaging system: the system’s performance had to be increased by 20 packs per minute. There was therefore an urgent need to change the conveyor belt deflection. Originally, metal rollers with needle roller bearings were used here, but they couldn’t meet the higher performance requirements and were cost-intensive. Looking for an alternative, Krones Design Engineer Jürgen Werner came upon igus GmbH products.
